Greetings from Bartonville!
The string of poor weather weekends impacted our plans for Bartonville Spring Clean-Up Day. Mark your calendars, this event has been rescheduled to Saturday, June 1st. Whenever we need to make a change such as this, a lot of re-planning occurs to try to reschedule all the services. Unfortunately, we will be unable to collect tree limbs at the make-up date. All residents will soon receive a postcard detailing three different ways to dispose of brush.
Town Council is also considering transitioning household hazardous waste collection from an annual drop-off to a monthly at home collection service (at no cost to residents). Further information regarding this transition will be available on the Town’s website by the end of the month.
Lastly, as a friendly reminder, we provide safe disposal of prescriptions at any time using the approved disposal kiosk inside Town Hall.
Speaking of rain and bad weather, this is a perfect time to remind everyone to mow your bar ditches and remove debris blocking culverts in your bar ditch. Keeping properly maintained ditches aides in improved motorist visibility, fire protection and just being a good neighbor. Wet weather and warner temperatures also brings back unwanted mosquitos. Be mindful of any standing water. Residents can receive up to 4 free mosquito dunks/rings (which kill mosquito larva) anytime that Town Hall is open.
As we approach Memorial Day, I want to extend an invitation to the dedication ceremony for Our Hometown Hero Wall, part of our Veteran’s Memorial program honoring the memory of Bartonville residents who gave their lives while serving in the Armed Forces. This dedication ceremony will take place at Bartonville Town Hall on Tuesday, June 11, at 6:30 p.m.
I am pleased to announce that Cloud 9 Salon & Spa will be relocating from Flower Mound to Bartonville. They will be located on FM 407 in front of Marty B’s. Construction on the new salon will begin this summer. May also brings back the Bartonville Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Last, but never least, I wish a warm and sunny Happy Mother’s Day to all our moms!
